Prayed to God not to give winner more than 250 seats: YSRCP Chief

Vastavam web: Today YS Jagan said he had prayed to God not to give more than 250 Lok Sabha seats to the party taking power at the Centre so that he can make it grant special category status to the state in exchange for legislative support but unfortunately the BJP got more than 300 seats.

“If they had got 250 seats, I could have made them sign the order on SCS before swearing-in but unfortunately they got overwhelming majority. They don’t even need our support,” said Jagan, as the YSRCP chief is popularly known. During an hour-long meeting with Modi, he requested him to show magnanimity even in the position of strength.

“He listened to the whole thing. He was positive about helping the state and its people. It is a good sign. I am hoping that things will work out positively,” the YSRCP chief said. The YSRCP, which stormed to power in the state with a landslide victory, also won 22 of the 25 Lok Sabha seats in the state.
